Kansas State University, Manhattan, Kansas

Mary Todd, Director of the K-State Women’s Center was in the Student Union with hundreds of various informational leaflets, making sure as many students as possible, learned of her organization. The Women’s Center teaches about dating safety, drinking and drugs, sexual abuse and making wise choices as a student on campus. Mary extended an invitation to come to the Women’s Center and learn about the important work she and her staff do on campus; it would take weeks, to just scratch the surface of the wealth of wisdom throughout her office. The University has a rare find on their hands.
Communications Coordinator, Olivia Blanco was so nice to help us find the directions to various buildings on campus. Upon learning of my mission she thought it worthy of being on the university’s Facebook page.
It was a great day to get a feel for this Manhattan, Kansas campus as I rode The Kindness Bicycle over most of its roads. The reaction by the student body was of great interest. Late in the day, Karen Ingram, Coverage Editor for The Kansas State Collegian interviewed me for an upcoming issue.
Thank you to Dr Priddle and his family for the interest in One Million Acts Of Kindness and The Kindness Bicycle/Bus Tour.
